Tomato, Basil & Goat’s Cheese Loaf

19 Oct

Last Friday, my cousins came over for dinner, it has been a while since we gathered around food. My favourite kind of gathering. So along with few cheeses, wine and snacks, I baked this cherry tomatoes, goat cheese, basilĀ loaf. I love the taste of cheese, melted in a dough. The basil gave it a great fragrance, and the cherry tomatoes, a juicy bite.

The loaf was so yummii, I loved it, so did my guests. And the recipe is very easy to make. Great party food.

morning dew. lovely.

Tomato, Basil & Goat’s cheese Loaf

– 100 g butter, plus extra for the tin

-300 g self-raising flour

– 1/2 tsp salt & lots of black pepper

– 175 g goat’s cheese, diced ( there is no need to remove the grind)

– 175 g firm cherry tomatoes, halved

– 15 g pack basil

– 100 ml milk

– 3 eggs

Heat oven to 180 C. Butter and line a 900 g loaf tin with baking parchment. Tip the flour and seasoning into a bowl, then rub in the butter until it disappears. Toss in 100 g each of the cheese and tomatoes, and roughly tear in the basil, keeping the pieces quite large.

Beat the milk and eggs together, then quickly stir into the flour and tomato mixture. Turn into the tin, smooth the top and scatter with the remaining cheese and tomatoes.

Bake for 45-50 min or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Cool and slice.

    This looks good. I don’t like goats cheese, but I’m sure I could substitute some other cheese.

      of course you can, i think some gruyere will give a great pungent taste too.
